Banksy In Chicago

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on May 10, 2010 7:00PM

It looks like British graffiti artists Banksy has paid a visit to our city. Even as his work has been cropping up in San Francisco and Toronto as of late, he found some time to drop in and leave the above Untouchables-inspired work at the corner of Randolph and Peoria. The work has been confirmed as his on his own website. Art gallery Maxwell Collette put up several shots of the work here. Be sure to check it out before Mayor Daley catches wind of it and has it painted over. [via]

UPDATED 5/14: We've updated the gallery with more examples of alleged Banksy work. The rat remains a question while the "You Concrete Me" piece appears, like the carriage, on Banksy's website.
